“This recipe is an adoptee from Mean Chef, who got it from Fine Cooking Magazine. Despite the fact that butterscotch is not my favorite pudding-type, I have to say that this recipe is heavenly. It is really incredible. Granted, it looks like a lot of work, but it really didn't take too long to put together and it was well worth it. Enjoy!”
